This impressive and spacious period home is full of character and tastefully decorated throughout, providing versatile accommodation over two floors. The property sits in a secluded 1 acre plot and is a haven for wildlife, with borders brimming with seasonal flowers, leading to a further 6.5 acres.
Entering the property through double doors you will feel the pressure of modern life melting away, the welcoming hallway leads to an elegant family room with chandeliers, William Morris wallpaper, stunning fireplace, and dual aspect sash windows with shutters – the current owners have celebrated many family occasions in here over the years!
A traditional door leads to a small powder room and WC, continuing along the hallway there are two further reception rooms, the study has a fresh modern interior that compliments the period features, the room is a good size with gas fire and window seating overlooking the front garden.
The second reception room is bright and spacious with two large windows, and decorated in neutral colours, the feature fireplace with original mantle and log burner is the focal point of the room and creates a relaxing area for all the family. The original servants hatch remains and connects to the kitchen.
Heading back along the hallway there is a large utility room fitted with cream base and wall units, sink, electric oven and hob and plumbing for washing machine, this leads into the country style kitchen fitted with bespoke units, Belfast sink, Cream electric AGA and free-standing butchers block, the perfect spot catching up over coffee and freshly baked cake. The original servants bell sits above the hatch leading into the second reception room. The conservatory is just off the kitchen and enjoys views of the well planted garden. A barn style door from the kitchen takes you into a large boot room with built in storage and seating, this is a must have in any country home, perfect in the winter for those muddy boots! This leads to the rear of the property where there is a secluded courtyard with flowerpots bursting with colour.
To the first floor there is a small WC and spacious landing that leads to the four generous bedrooms, all of which have been recently decorated and fitted with new carpets so there should be no squabbles over who gets the biggest room – although the master bedroom is significantly bigger and has the potential to create a en-suite and dressing room from the adjoining storage room so this one should definitely be for the grown-ups!
The bathroom has been recently renovated to create a luxurious space with free standing bath, large walk-in shower, a sleek double vanity unit with His and Hers sinks, traditional style radiators with fitted towel rails and underfloor heating complete this space.
They say “it’s what’s inside that counts……” but this charming period property has extensive grounds and gardens that are just as impressive as the inside. The large gravel driveway has parking for several cars, a detached barn with double doors is currently used as a garage but has potential to create a separate annex, home office or workshop. There is a small courtyard with two outbuildings, seating area and access to garden where the current owners have lovingly created an English Country Garden full of flower beds, pathways edged with wildflowers, secluded areas for seating and an allotment with views of the paddock and land.
There's plenty to do on the doorstep, especially if you love the outdoors. You’re just minutes from the Derwent Walk, which is an old railway line that is also part of the C2C cycle route, the Reservoir is less than 15 minutes by car and has some beautiful walks and a haven for sailing enthusiasts and anglers.
The village of Shotley Bridge village is within walking distance and has a charming range of local shops and amenities including a primary school (infant and junior schools), a fantastic tennis and cricket club. Consett town centre is 1.5 miles away and provides a wider range of shops, supermarkets and sporting facilities. It is well positioned for access to Newcastle and Durham, both within 16 miles, making it an excellent location from which to commute.
This impressive period property gives you all the benefits of an idyllic country home with versatile accommodation and land – without the sacrifices which come with a more remote rural setting!
